HK Lee Tae Kwon Do, our children's programs are second to
none. We teach our students using a basic philosophy of positive
reinforcement to build Self Esteem, Confidence, Discipline,
Positive Attitude and Values. At H.K. Lee Tae Kwon Do, we
realize that although the ability to defend oneself is important,
there are many additional benefits to martial arts program.
Our unique method of training is fun and is designed to:
- Instill a Positive Attitude
- Build Confidence & Self Esteem
- Teach the Importance of Strong
- Values & Good Character
- Promote the Desire to Learn
- Improve Effort & Motivation
- Improve Concentration
- Teach Self Discipline
- Instill Respect for Themselves & for Others
embodying these principles in our children's classes, the
H.K. Lee Tae Kwon Do team has made a strong commitment to
today's youth. Our carefully designed programs for children
of all ages will improve your child's performance in other
sports as well as improving study habits and increasing overall
concentration. In addition to this, by building self confidence,
self-respect, and self-discipline, we are helping young people
to deal with the many problems they face growing up in today's
world, including drugs, peer pressure and gangs.
Homework is an important part of a child's development. With
our After School Program, we have a homework
room designed to enhance children's learning. Under supervision,
the children have access to the Internet through Pentium and
Apple Computers to conduct research and to learn about things
that help them manage their day to day world.

Many parents are enrolling kids in martial-arts classes hoping
they will learn discipline and self-defense and get a healthy
workout. But a new study suggests Western methods for teaching
martial arts may make kids more aggressive than savvy. Reason:
Many courses ignore the ancient philosophy and just teach
At Texas A&M University, Dr. Michael Trulson divided 34
teens prone to delinquency (as determined by psychological
tests) into three groups.
For six months, group A spent one hour, three times a week
learning the ancient Korean martial art, Tae Kwon Do.
Along with self-defense, it emphasizes setting goals in life,
respect for others, honesty, humility, responsibility and
honor. Group B spent the time learning a short-cut modern
version of Tae Kwon Do (no philosophy), while Group C got
no training at all.
Results: No change in Group C, but the kids in the two martial-arts
groups responded in radically different ways. Those in Group
A, who got the version emphasizing body and mind, got all
the benefits: less anxiety, higher self-esteem, improved social
skills, stronger values and, best of all, below-average levels
of aggression. But kids in Group B (body only) got worse ?and
their aggression shot way up.
Advice to parents: If you enroll kids in a martial-arts class,
stick to tradition. Training the body without the mind may
be a path to trouble.
As an educator it is clear to me that the benefits of Grandmaster
H.K. Lee’s Tae Kwon Do to students are great. Self-confidence,
concentration, cooperation, and patience are learned through
the practice of Tae Kwon Do. These abilities carry over to
the classroom. Most importantly, Grandmaster Lee’s system
increases the young person’s ability to peacefully resist
negative peer pressure. I believe that this is crucial to
the sound development of our citizens.
